lemonbars

RAW SWEET GOODNESS

I dreamed these up the other day when I was trying to take a nap :)

Super simple, dairy, grain free and almost vegan except for the honey but you could sub in maple syrup.

These bars are so creamy and lemony its almost like you are eating lemon butter.

They’re a great sweet treat when you are avoiding refined chemical sweeteners and processed junk food.

In fact, you could even have one for breakfast if it was say… maybe your Birthday… like I did today 😉

Recipe:

1 cup raw macadamia nuts (if you don’t have raw that’s OK too)

1/2 cup raw cashews (if you don’t have raw that’s OK too)

juice from one lemon

1 pinch sea salt

1/2 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup honey

1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

Directions: Put everything in a food processor except the shredded coconut and blend until creamy. Next, pour into an 8×8 baking dish lined with parchment or plastic wrap (this will make the bars a lot easier to get out), sprinkle with coconut. Finally pop them in the freezer for about 35-40 min and cut into bars. That’s it! How easy was that?

Need more ideas for cutting sugar out of your diet? I’m giving a free talk all about the Sugar Blues on May 7th and the Santa Monica YMCA. If you are in the area come say hi! Talk starts at 11:00am. If you are not a local SoCal resident but still need to hear the talk I will be offering it online soon as well.
